Sample text

See chapter 7 for advice on what to buy. Chew toys. Dogs must chew, especially puppies. Make sure you get things that won’t break or crumble off in little bits, which the dog can choke on. Very hard plastic bones are a good choice. Dogs love rawhide bones, too, but pieces of the rawhide can get caught in your dog’s throat, so they should only be allowed when you are there to supervise. Toys. Watch for sharp edges and unsafe items such as plastic eyes that can be swallowed. Many toys come with squeakers, which dogs can also tear out and swallow.

If you use this gradual approach, it won’t be long before your puppy will begin to feel comfortable with you and his new family. Depending on his age, your puppy’s first night is likely to be a disturbing one for your family. The younger your puppy is, the more probable it is that he will be confused and frightened at being away from his mother and his littermates. He will let you know this by loud, mournful wails that can last for a remarkably long time. This is a perfect example of the usefulness of a crate.

There are also crates made of sturdy metal wire, which provide more ventilation, stay cleaner, are completely collapsible, and allow your Dachshund to see everything that is going on around him. However, they are not suitable for airline travel and do not hold in the warmth in colder weather. This last point is of no concern, however, if the crate is to be used exclusively in the house. I personally prefer a wire crate for indoor use, because it enables your Dachshund to feel that he is still part of things, since he can see all around him.
